Ok, maybe I shouldn't be the one posting this as I am rather anti-Barbie and just the sight of these dolls causes my stomach to curdle, but this particular version of Barbie is so ridiculous (says one of the girls who is obsessed with make-believe vampires) that I must share this information with you.
The Edward and Bella Barbie dolls are available for pre-order on the Canadian Toys R Us website. Delivery of these nausea-inducing figures begins in October of this year. Here is the description from the website:
And so the lion fell in love with the lamb.Twilight has quickly become a worldwide phenomenon developing a strong core base of dedicated fans who are drawn to the story of a Romeo & Juliet style romance between mortal (Bella) and vampire (Edward). Who better to capture the young star-crossed love of these two characters than Barbie & Ken. Edward is luminescent with a shimmering complexion and trademark gold eyes. Bella doll sold separately.
Notice the line in red. Can we say inflated ego? So dear readers, I have a challenge for you. What other kinds of dolls would be a better representation of Bella and Edward?
